We don’t just like Ethnicraft Furniture, we LOVE it! When we have a new delivery you will be able to see Natural Bed Company staff climbing over each other to get a good look, but we are not embarrassed of our giddy actions – It’s Scandi, minimal designs and beautiful timber finishes have us completely hooked and after you’ve read this blog we’re certain you will be smitten too!
Ethnicraft’s values reflect our own – quality furniture, made well with sustainably sourced timber. In their own words – “Our oak collection is authentic, warm and natural. It is strong, functional and sturdy, made with a passion for pure lines and respect for the wood itself that becomes even more beautiful as years go by.” Sounds pretty great to us!
Although Ethnicraft furniture has a slightly different finish to our own furniture, it still pairs with our oak bed bases beautifully. The Ethnicraft finish is very matte in appearance and can appear slightly lighter than our oak furniture with our ‘natural’ lacquer finish. Ethnicraft also have a more rustic, slightly less polished finish which means the range works perfectly in all spaces – from modern and minimal studio apartments to classic English cottages. See some of our favourite pairings to our bed bases below:
Frame Side Table
This is solid oak bedside table is simple in design yet it packs stylish punch, everyone stops to look at this piece in our showroom. The bold, geometric shape of this side table works well with our contemporary collection of low, modern beds including the Ki, Kobe and Kumo Japanese style beds, and the Nevada, Sonora and Iona beds. The Frame side table is particularly great for smaller bedrooms as it can tuck neatly under the bed frame and still gives you space for your cup of tea or pull up to treat your partner (or yourself) to breakfast in bed!
Frame Dressing Table
This stylish console table is made of solid oak and incorporates two handy drawers for storage – making it ideal to use as a dressing table, hall-way console table or useful desk. We love this piece paired with a classic four poster bed such as the Orchid, Highland, Oasis or Cube – the strong lines of the frame mirror the tall posts and canopy of the beds. Used as a dressing table this piece is an ideal luxury touch to a master bedroom, simply add a mirror and pair with the Ethnicraft Osso Stool to complete the look.
Ligna Bedside Cupboard
This piece is both stylish, useful and compact enough to be used as a bedside table. The Ethnicraft Ligna nightstand incorporates a cupboard and a drawer and is supported on a slender, elegant metal base. This beautiful contrast works especially well with minimal designs such as the Sahara, Malabar or Tibet. It is also the perfect height to be used with both low or regular height beds, we’ve paired it with many beds, from our Highland Four Poster and our Iona Low bed! There are also two other pieces in this range, the Ligna storage cupboard with drawers or with open shelves – so you can complete your room with a full matching set.
Madra Low Bedside Drawer
A fairly statement piece, the Madra low table appears to be a floating block of solid oak, which is actually a large (but well hidden) storage drawer on a low, inset plinth. This unit works perfectly with our contemporary low beds such as the Ki, Kulu, Kumo or Kyoto. We love this piece paired with the Ki bed base as the cube shape is mirrored by the solid plank featured on the bottom of the bed base. This table would be ideal in a minimal loft space, an ultra modern studio apartment or anyone looking to quickly inject a bit of Scandi style to their bedroom!
The newest collection to be added to our Ethnicraft range – Monolit features beautiful solid oak contrasted against a lacquered metal frame. This range includes a console table, bedside table, two door cupboard and low media unit/cupboard. The matching Gabbia chair looks great with it too. This selection would pair perfectly with any of our Solid Oak, Black stained Ash or upholstered beds. We have a whole blog on this new style if you want a more in depth look!
